In some earthquakes and other natural disasters where houses were destroyed, occasionally a few mosques were still standing. Countless Muslim sites have reproduced these pictures claiming they are miracles of Allah
The reason these mosques have not been destroyed is not due to any miracle. It’s because they were built better. Generally, people put a lot of love and effort when building their place of worship. This is a special place and they don’t tend to cheat or economize. As the result mosques, churches and temples are more lasting than ordinary houses.
However, even these buildings tend to get destroyed in stronger earthquakes, as the following pictures show.
Assuming these residences were destroyed by Allah while he saved the mosques, wouldn’t that make Allah a terrorist? Why would a sane god do such thing to innocent people and destroy so many lives, including those of children?
In their eagerness to attribute phony miracles to Allah Muslims incriminate him further and make of him a ruthless terrorist.
The truth is that God has nothing to do with any natural disaster. Disasters, despite their name, are not “acts of God.” They are acts of nature. Mother Earth lives her own life. She is not aware of our existence. If we stand in her way we get hurt. No one sends earthquakes and no one can save us from them, except ourselves.
